Declan Rice deleted UEFA post for a good reason after West Ham ban

Declan Rice deleted UEFA post for a good reason after West Ham ban for the Europa League clash in Vienna made the headlines last night.

West Ham fans were raging after it was announced UEFA have banned them from buying tickets for the trip to Rapid Wien next Thursday due to disturbances in previous games.

The problem is thousands of Hammers fans – myself included – already have match tickets, flights and accommodation booked.

While West Ham supporters will get their match ticket money back, compensation for everything else is unlikely.

West Ham fans loved it when they saw Declan Rice hit out at UEFA in a post on social media last night.

The post was hastily deleted.

But not before West Ham fans and media outlets had screenshotted it and shared it around.

Declan Rice deleted UEFA post for a good reason after West Ham ban

Rice was spot on with what he said in the post.

But the midfield star deleted the post for a good reason – because West Ham don’t want him getting banned too.

UEFA are a contrary bunch. And they – like FIFA – seem to have it in for the English over the years.

There has always been animosity from football’s governing bodies towards the English game and our pride at being the birthplace of the beautiful game.

West Ham have made it clear they feel the punishment is harsh.

But UEFA would not hesitate to ban Rice for speaking out.

If you think the FA is bad when it comes to things like that, UEFA are next level.

The fans are banned so the last thing we want is Rice being banned too.

Sharing his post around probably won’t help his cause either so I won’t do that here. But it’s safe to say Rice merely said what every West Ham fan is thinking.

West Ham are clearly getting too massive for their own good!

The football authorities don’t like us upsetting the applecart and they will do anything they can to throw a spanner in the works
